From Cooking Light, January/February 2004. The orange rind doesn't add much potassium to the drink, but it does give a lot of flavor. I know dialysis patients have to limit their fluid intake ... but why shouldn't our fluids be tasty as well?
4 cups cranberry juice cocktail
4 cups apple cider or apple juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
5 (3 x 1-inch) strips orange rind
8 whole cloves
4 whole allspice
2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks, halved
1 whole nutmeg
1. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve and discard solids. Serve cider warm. Makes 16 1/2-cup servings.
